Biography[]

Alex suffered from severe depression most of his life, and had to see a therapist since he was five. He tried to commit suicide twice. The first time was in Ducky, when he drank beer and drowned himself in a bathtub. The second time was in Ducky, Diary Two, when he shut himself inside his car and turned on the engine. Ducky was there just in time to open the garage door and get him out of the car. Alex was then sent to the hospital and expected to make a 100% recovery. The day after that attempt, he went to Chicago for rehab and to live with his uncle Dave. The doctors tell Mrs. Snyder that Alex's condition was much worse then just depression.

Before he leaves Alex tells Ducky thank you after he helps him move.
